Hide and surprise game

Hide and surprise memory game

All you need for this game is a toy or object you want to make ‘disappear’, and something to cover it with. A beaker or cloth will work fine.

  • Place the object in front of your baby - make sure they see it clearly
  • Then cover it up and ask: “Where did it go?”
  • Wait for them to respond
  • Uncover it, saying “Here it is!” The more over-the-top you are, the more fun it is!
  • Ask your baby to help you look for it
  • Look for it in silly places together. Is it under the chair? Up your sleeve?
  • Act super surprised when you find it.

Good to know
